WORDSWORTH is pleased to announce
the distribution of two best-selling,
critically-acclaimed books about Jack London . . .
This is the thrilling story of one mans rush for
riches and his desire to escape the lifelong poverty he had always
known. For Jack London, this challenging journey of more than
10,000 miles changed his life . . . and the course of American
literature. Dodging avalanches, braving frozen lakes, navigating
dangerous whitewater rapids, and surviving a deadly-cold Klondike
winter, London overcame scurvy, hardships, and dire disappointments
to encounter heroism, human kindness, and majestic landscapes.
This definitive account the most complete and most authentic
on the subject to date details Jacks adventurous
quest for gold.
Written by Mike Wilson, noted author, lecturer, and historian. Mike creates a fascinating look into the world of the Klondike Gold Rush as well as one of its most famous participants. And, who better to relate this amazing story than an acknowledged Jack London expert who has portrayed Jack London in the first person for more than a dozen years!
Who was the fascinating man behind the legend? Forget all the rumors. In this book, you can read Jacks thoughts and ideas . . . in his own words. More insightful than an autobiography, Londons words offer a direct glimpse into his life, mind, and spirit. His words reflect his multi-faceted personality direct, enthusiastic, intelligent, passionate, and at times, brutally frank. This collection of quotations the most comprehensive to date from Jack Londons writings and letters allow us to better understand who he was his dreams, his doubts, and frustrations. By publishing these words, Jack London speaks for himself.
This book also contains a Chronology of Jack Londons life . . . one of the most complete and accurate chronologies in existence!
